If you want to stay original, just for the look, you can still buy them from Coker Tire;
Michelin - Cars & Trucks - Tire Brands

or you can find something close in size. I've got 195/65-15 on my 1800ES. A little wider and almost the same diameter. Shop around.

No, they're still made by Michelin in France.

went with pirelli p4 in a safe size 185-65-15
so far, very nice


now if i could only find a horn assembly, a proper bolt for the rear diff, a bulb for the glove box, an replacement oem seatbelt for the drivers side and a temp sensor i'll be all set

Good choice.

Old suspension design of a 122 (origins in PV series) will operate much better with a size closer to original than with a modern, wide tire. No tram-lining and easier to park.

For the rest, try http://www.vp-autoparts.com/ or post a request on an Amazon club site.
